Earlier today, Mark Zuckerberg (CEO of Facebook, duh) showed us his AI assistant that he developed as a hobby. It is called Jarvis, inspired by none other than Jarvis from Iron Man, and it is indeed voiced by Morgan Freeman. The video is not too impressive, although it is interesting to watch.
Do you see the similarity? Jarvis seems to do pretty much the same stuff that Amazon’s Alexa (in Echo) and Google’s Assistant (in Google Home) do. Jarvis is far more connected though - from toasters to door cameras, it has access to them and can control them autonomously.
The highlight of the video, according to me, is that t-shirt cannon. Mark wears the same t-shirt everyday, so Jarvis taking control over his laundered t-shirts makes perfect sense. There are a lot of awkward moments in the video though, and Mashable pointed them all out in this article.
Jarvis is an awesome hobby project, but will we ever get our hands on it? That’s up to Mark to decide.
